Arriving in St. Paul, the steamer Galena delivers cholera along with its passengers. Cholera’s last occurrence in Minnesota would be in 1873.

Thanks to FOCUS 10 Northfield High School and Clare Foley for the research on June’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
